Columbus - 
Today, State Senator Kris Jordan (R - Powell) introduced Senate Bill 284 which would eliminate the February and August special elections. "In 2009, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner estimated that eliminating special elections in Ohio would save the taxpayers anywhere from $2.7 to $5.4 million each year," Jordan said. "Senate Bill 284 saves tax dollars as well as trips to the polls for voters, who should not be asked to vote in February or August on a proposal that they and many more of their fellow citizens could just as easily vote on in May or November." Jordan continued, "I'm proud to have strong support from both sides of the aisle in this endeavor. In a time of tight budgets, there is simply no reason to continue to waste tax dollars on elections with low turnout and issues that quite frankly can wait three months to give more voters a say in the process."
Jordan represents Ohio's 19th Senate District, which includes Delaware, Knox, Morrow, Richland, and part of Ashland counties. Prior to serving in the Senate, he served as a State Representative and as a Delaware County Commissioner. He is a proven advocate for spending restraint, lower taxes, and family values. He lives in Powell with his wife, Melissa.
